Congrats on the little one. We have 3, a little older now but, we have always camped and will continue to do so.

Have fun looking for a new unit.

Hi Steve! Welcome! Spend lots of time looking at floor plans and styles to find the perfect camper for you and the family! I know that you'll have many happy trips in the future!

Thanks again for the welcomes everyone!

Yes floor plans are definitely an important decision and is where I am stuck for the moment . There is just sooo many lol. I have seen us being able to be in everything from an a-frame up to a 30' total length camper. Trying to narrow down what's most important is taxing to say the least. I would like something under 26' total length because for now we camp in the provincial parks and a lot of them that we frequent do not have very large sites, so getting in a 30'+ trailer plus a 20'+ tv could be problematic. Even a 26' might be pushing it now that I think about it. Anyways thanks for the tips and advice, really appreciate it

When we we're considering a smaller TT with bunks for our kids, FR makes a unit call Surveyor in a triple bunk model with one slide, just a thought.

Welcome BC Boy! We camp in your area for about 6 to 7 weeks a year. The camping on the south island has become very expensive. You folks have some of the finest free camping on Vancouver Island in your backyard. Check it out as I am finding the Provincial Campsites are becoming very expensive.

Might try visiting the A-Frame forum here for feedback especially for consideration for a family of 5. While I almost brought an A-Liner (different company) I don't really know much about the A-frame units.

Here's the link.
